Cabinet Office Questions: Hereditary Peers

This summer another hereditary peer by-election took place. The winner of these elections get a seat in Parliament for life and get to decide how your laws are made. Their only qualification for running needed? That they have a relative who was a blue blooded hereditary peer. This is a ridiculous part of the UKs parliament and needs to be removed. I have a Bill that the UK Government could adopt but they refuse.

I asked yet again when they will take action to remove the hereditary peers from the House of Lords and the minister stated that it is not government policy. This is nonsense on sticks!
